Upskill with G Adventures’ new National Geographic journeys specialist program

Keen to expand your skills during this quiet period? G Adventures has been busy preparing a new educational tool just for you!

The adventure travel company has launched a new program for Aussie and Kiwi agents to enhance their knowledge and boost sales of small group trips offered in partnership with National Geographic Expeditions.

The National Geographic journeys agent specialist program, which opened for registrations today, consists of a one-hour course organised into four learning modules, and can be accessed from any desktop or mobile device at any time.

It includes videos, quizzes and a final test that will help travel professionals boost their product knowledge while gaining insights into the core customers who are most likely to book.

In part one, agents will gain a deeper understanding of the National Geographic and G Adventures partnership, including its goals, background and unique positioning in the market.

Part two dives into details about the culturally-immersive experiences that set Journeys apart from other trips.

The third section provides research about the target Journeys traveller, including top travel interests and booking preferences, to help agents identify top prospects.

The fourth chapter covers the new National Geographic Family Journeys itineraries, target customer and more.

The four modules can be completed in one sitting or in separate parts.

Upon completion of the course, newly-certified ‘Journeys Specialists’ will receive a personalised certificate and have access to tools and resources to help them sell National Geographic Journeys. 

Dan Coleman, G Adventures’ national sales manager across Australia and New Zealand, said: “We designed this learning course with the greatest flexibility in mind for our agent partners. We know they have many options and providers from which to choose.

“Once enrolled, they will have unlimited access to the course so it can be taken at whatever pace best suits their schedules.”

“The idea is to help travel agents feel fully equipped and empowered so that, together, we can change more lives together.”

G Adventures and National Geographic first joined forces in 2015 with the launch of National Geographic Journeys with G Adventures, a program of small group adventures that has grown from 70 trips in its first year to 96 trips in 54 countries today.
